Description

Grammar & Style: Getting Your Organization on the Same Page

Do you know "that" from "which"? Whether to use the serial comma? How to punctuate dates and states? This fun, interactive workshop on grammar and style in the nonprofit workplace is designed to help individuals improve their own writing and move their organizations toward using standard style guidelines. Participants will learn the answers to frequently asked questions such as when to hyphenate and use semicolons, when to use "who" versus "whom," and how to style dashes, state abbreviations, and numerals. We will also discuss proofreading and editing one's own work to catch typical errors in writing.

Key Takeaways:

  • Top 10 grammar blunders that many writers make
  • Choosing between the University of Chicago Manual of Style and the Associated Press Stylebook
  • When it's okay to make exceptions to the rules

This workshop will be presented will by Barbara Kancelbaum, Communications Consultant
